Go Fish at New Vancouver Seafood Restaurant Ancora

September 18, 2015

ancoraQuestion: What happens when you take a waterfront restaurant, make it white and bright and beach-y, add a famous sushi master and a Peruvian chef and drop in a crudo bar, cocktails and a Peruvian-Asian take on fish?

Answer: Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio, Vancouver’s newest seafood joint, where dishes read like the passport of an international dignitary. Case in point: Haida Gwaii halibut on a bed of "Forbidden," i.e., Chinese black, rice paella with Peruvian corn and baby squid ($34). Enjoy your meal al fresco on the large patio, or on the romantic second-floor juliet balcony that may just be the city’s best new date perch.

The calming, sand-coloured décor and sky-blue flourishes are in perfect contrast to the weathered mosaic floor left over from predecessor C, but we think you’ll agree this spot is in a class of its own. —Sarah Bancroft
